Here is a note from our CT Quilters QOV Leader:


We look forward to getting together again this coming Friday.

In addition to the list previously posted for what we expect our activities to be, I have completed four quilts on the longarm and hope to do two more before Friday, so we will have volunteers sew the binding on the front side of each with their sewing machines and then others will hand sew the binding to the backside of the quilts.

Our volunteers are great and we always welcome new members. Last month we welcomed a new volunteer who actually was in the same Quilt Guild as I am and some of the other CT Quilters. Small World.

I spoke to the Volunteer Coordinator at the VA and their Fall Festival was quite a success. Netting them a few thousand dollars which will be utilized this Holiday season for the gifts and necessities for those at the Hospital.

We continue to make kits and sew tops together, but we need your help. We are in dire need of fabrics. Red, White and Blue. We can use 1/2 yard (or larger) increments to cut fabrics for the kits. We also need fabric for the backings of the quilts. We need at least four yard pieces for the backings. All fabric needs to be 100% cotton. Thank you if you can help, just drop off at Crafty Threads.

Just to let you know no fabric goes to waste, if we can't use it we donate it to the ConKerr Cancer Pillowcase Group or to another group that makes quilts for kids - Project Linus.

This meeting we may have a special visit from a member of the Quilts of Valor Foundation.

Come and join us, bring your lunch or there are several restaurants close by.

Until Friday,
Pat - CT Quilter
